19 Easy Ways To Prove That You're Down With The Kids

You know what the teens love? Memes! And emojis! Let's all meme together! From r/FellowKids.

2. You can connect with teens so easily when you do use their language. For example, this is a perfect birthday card for a teen. (To be clear, "sick" actually means good, and "wicked" also means good. And everyone knows teens love to be random.)


4. Even history can be improved by introducing social media. The hashtag #TRENCH FOOT! is just a great example of this – it's exactly how the teens use Twitter, and there's no part of it that's "broken" or utterly fucking illogical.

6. There is nothing, literally nothing, the teens like more than an acrostic – except selfies and hashtags, of course. So put them both together, and you've got a super-fly learning opportunity.


9. Emojis are wonderful! They're easy to understand because they're little pictures! Teens, obviously, are now mostly illiterate, so the only real way for them to express themselves is using pictures.

11. But it's not all fun and games. There is a serious purpose to adjusting your language, as many teens simply cannot understand it otherwise. So when you need to make a real warning, sprinkle some text-speak in there. Just to make sure.


16. Here's another example of always using the correct language, the process of which is called "appropriation", a word that definitely means exactly this positive thing and nothing else.

17. If you're marketing to a teen audience, one way is to take one meme (pronounced to rhyme with "candied yams") and combine it with another. This shows the teens just how much of a "memelord" you truly are.

19. Whatever you're doing, if you want the teens to like it, just add a meme! (pronounced like your groaning howl into the pitch-black void of your own irrelevance as you realise the destruction time has wrought on your increasingly frail body)
